Customer Reviews of Asante Voyager Smartbot Security HD Indoor Camera
Perfect camera; exactly as described2/20/2012
This is an awesome camera. Wireless, motion sensor, high res, people detection, email and FTP. Just what I was looking for. Going to order 2 more to cover other areas of my home.
Can't get advanced features in stand-alone mode2/11/2012
I've already wrote a more positive review earlier when I did not realize that most of the cam's advanced features, such as email notification, FTP storage and intelligent recognition are only available when the camera is run with the SmartBot software on your PC. Frankly, had I known that ahead of time, I would not have bought it because to me an IP cam should operate with all its features in stand-alone mode, without being connected to a running PC. In other words, the cam's built-in firmware should provide most of those features while connected only to a power source an a router by cable or WiFi. Because this cam can't do that, I rate it only average
Good value with some weaknesses1/31/2012
I bought the SmartBot on the strength of its specs and the mostly raving reviews here. Though I am not sorry that I did, I still wish a few things were better. Like the color rendition and its low light sensitivity without the IR LEDs on. The colors are very cold and can't be adjusted much. Beside the cam's cheap look, the Web interface also looks like it was an afterthought. It's too bad because the "smarts" that went into the design of this camera deserved a better execution. But I probably shouldn't complain, considering how inexpensive the cam is compared to some others with less smarts built into them.
great functionality, has a drawback1/20/2012
1. Great resolution. 2. Easy to use software. 3. Remote access is easy via web and/or mobile device. 4. Great value when on sale. 5. Software's ability to identify people and condense the video is a great feature. 6. Good (but not exceptional) night time ability. cons - wifi encryption can not enter special character. they said will fix.
HD720 day and night camera12/19/2011
I love the camera. I love that it works with smartphones as well and that Smartbot is even making my life very easy. It's easy to setup and troubleshoot and after it's setup, it's just plug & go wherever you want around the house!!! It emailed me people ONLY unlike others give you many emails and drive you crazy to open and delete all emails.
A great smart home camera10/21/2011
I love the smartbot which is smart and easy. I set up within 10 mins. And see the video and image when I test it. A great and sharp image send to my email when it catches people or object. I do not need to watch live video.
